Course description

This degree gives students access to the full range of English Studies. Alongside the traditional range of English Literature from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day, students are able to study American, Irish and post-colonial literatures as well as cultural theory, creative writing and film. In the first year, students sample a wide variety of literature and cultural theory and develop a solid basis of knowledge and skill which they then build on in years 2 and 3. All courses are compulsory in year 1, while in years 2 and 3, students select their courses from a range of options. There is a compulsory long essay in the final year.
